The Server Certificate does not match the hostname..

    Question

  • Dear All,

    We have around 11 Sun OS Servers, I have deployed on 6 servers without any problem but on some servers I am receiving the following certificate error: 


    The server certificate on the destination computer (server_FQDN:1270) has the following errors:    
    The SSL certificate contains a common name (CN) that does not match the hostname.

    Although, the name is absolutely correct and it is discovering successfully, the agent is installing on some servers but some servers are giving error..

    I am looking for your help..



    Regards,

    I'm getting the same error when the name of the server is diffrent from the name in the DNS. What you can do is adding the name in the certificate to the HOSTS file.
